Bushinkai teaches Classical Okinawan, Japanese and Chinese martial arts. We only teach adults and our classes are popular with those who want to discover the martial aspects of the traditional arts.

Among our schools are our Manchester Hombu (headquarters) where we teach classical Karate Jutsu (Toshu Jutsu) and classical Nihon Jujutsu (Hakuda). We also have a school in Dalton/Wigan teaching the classical Chinese internal martial arts. Other arts such as Aikido and Iaido are also taught within the school.
